I had a formaintomy, laminotomy and facetotomy on L4 about six months ago, then the same thing on L5/s1 two months ago. Still having an awful time with burning and tingling in left knee and foot. An EMG supposedly showed nerve damage but the kind that will heal in a year or so. I need reassurance that thisWILLL get better. I'm on neurontin and Percocet and after several days of increased activity I'm worse than usual. I'm very depressed, very anxious and just need encouragement that this can feel better in time. PLEASE ENCOURAGE ME as I feel like i'm hanging by a thin thread. Thank you!
